West Blue Hotel

We're just here for

two days, mom?


Maybe a week longer.

But I hope not.

What do you mean?

Are we moving here?

Let's believe your uncle.

He said he would

turn himself in.

Nothing about killing himself?

He wouldn't kill himself.


I kept telling you not

to be his guarantor.

Of course. You warned

me a million times.

He's not even a human being.

How could he do this to us?

Your aunt married

the wrong man.

He's putting our family

out on the street.

Then he ran away

to save himself.

That's true.

Give me that cake.

So these things

really happen.

What am I doing here?

I'm going to fix

everything somehow.

Have faith in your mother.

I'm writing a script

to calm my nerves.

It was about a woman

running from debt.

Now it's about a charming

French visitor.

She will be a successful

French director,

Like the woman I saw

At the Jeonju film festival.

It's a small beach,

you like it?

Yeah. It's small, but,

it's beautiful.

What's its name?

What's it called?

It's Mohang.

Mohang beach.


- what does it mean?

- I don't know.

Does it have a meaning?

I don't think so.

Oh, be careful!

What kind of people

would do this?

- What?

- It's Soju Byung.

It's a Soju bottle.

A Soju bottle.

They're... it's crazy Koreans,

they're crazy about drinking.


But they don't know... how to...

behave for the others.

Be careful. Be careful.

It's cool.

- How have you been?

- Good.

- Did you graduate?

- Not yet.

- But how old are you?

- Twenty-Five.

- I see.

- I'm taking time off.

Oh, her? She's very famous.

Anne, this is Won-Ju.

- Hello.

- Hello.

- She's so charming.

- You think so?

She's a French director.

- What?

- No. Nothing.

Ah, she said

you're beautiful.

- Oh, really? Thank you.

- You're welcome. It's true.

- Oh, you're very beautiful too.

- Thank you.

Yes, both of you

are beautiful.

- And me? What about me?

- What?

- What?

- Ah, no no.

You too. Let's go.

- More than Wonju?

- Of course.

More than Anne?

Of course! How can

you ask me that?

- Can I trust you on that?

- Don't be silly.

- She is talking about me?

- Yes. It's nothing.

- She thinks you're beautiful.

- Hmm... really?

No, I don't think

she was saying that.

I think so.

Ok. So we're all beautiful.

Let's go.


Thank you.

- Thanks.

- Sure.

Enjoy your stay.

She's taking a shower.

You remember our kiss?


What kiss?

You don't remember our kiss?

A kiss?

In berlin. In a playground.

You don't remember?

- Oh. Yes. I remember. Sure.

- Great.

So, it was just a kiss.

You know... just a kiss.


- Yes. It was just a kiss.

- Yeah, great. Yeah.

We are friends.

From now on, just friends.

- You know. Great friends.

- Yes, of course.

Yeah, we're ok. We're friends.

Don't worry.

You know...

she's pregnant.

Yes, you don't have to tell me.

I could see it by myself.

- Thank you, Anne.

- You're welcome.

- It's a nice place.

- Yes. Nice place...


You showered already.

I was smoking.

- What's wrong?

- It hurts a little.


- It hurts here.

- Does it hurt a lot?

Honey, I should lie down.

- Spread out the blankets.

- Okay. I got it.

Are you ok? Is it bad?

Yes, Im sick a little bit.

What can we do?

You should lie down.

I know. I know.

Thank you.

This is why I told you

to stay home.

You should rest.

To be alone with her?


Fine, then.

- Lie down.

- I need to lie down.


- Let go!

- Should we see a doctor?


- Hello.

- Hello.

- It's raining.

- I know.

- Do you have an umbrella?
